Oh they were definitely loud.

Had Deandre Ayton all fired up.

“The fans did a great job,” Ayton said. “I haven’t heard that arena like that since I got drafted (in 2018). It was packed.”

Not quite, but the crowd of 5,110 was certainly roaring during Wednesday’s overtime win over Utah inside Phoenix Suns Arena.

“It sound like a full house,” he said. “I just really appreciate that out of them.”

The NBA has been having limited fans at its games outside of a bubble environment during the COVID-19 pandemic this season. The Suns raised their fan limit to “5,500-plus” starting with Wednesday’s game against the team with the NBA’s best record.

The NBA is expecting to have full arena capacity next season, ESPN reported Wednesday, as the league announced a partnership with CLEAR, a secure identity company, that will make CLEAR’s Health Pass technology “available to NBA teams for COVID-19 health screenings.”
